Areas of Expertise

Dr Haddad undertook post fellowship training in robotic uro-oncology at McGill University (Montreal General Hospital, Jewish General Hospital of Montreal, 2012) and has retained a high volume robotic experience in clinical practice since then. He is a robotic proctor. He has an expert understanding of the indications, contraindications, subtleties and ergonomics of the robotic surgical platform. Complex open pelvic and open renal surgery are his other oncologic areas of practice.
